What’s So Important About Treating Misalignment?

Invisalign for crooked teeth in Arlington Heights ILDo you have teeth that crowd or overlap? For many, misalignment is an embarrassing esthetic concern, but few seem to realize the dangers that poor alignment can pose. Without treatment, an uneven smile can actually lead to a number of serious complications.

How Does Invisalign Work?

We will take detailed digital impressions, as well as digital x-rays, which are then used to create a series of clear plastic aligners. Patients then wear the aligners every day for between 20 and 23 hours, upgrading to a new set about once every two weeks. Over the course of about a year, your smile will be straightened and your misalignment addressed.

What Benefits Do Clear Aligners Offer?

First, you can remove the aligners! Which means you don’t need to avoid certain foods and brushing/flossing your teeth becomes significantly easier. The aligners are also more comfortable, treatment requires fewer office visits, and treatment is often shorter than if you were wearing metal braces.
